That "only" seems to be a biggie, isn't it?

We -- Red Hat -- considered a similar, virtfs based driver for GlusterFS
but we dropped that plan exactly for virtfs being abandonware.

As far as I know it was meant to be a research project, and providing
a fairly well working POC it was concluded -- but Deepak knows more of
the story.

What's your take on it? I'm really curious if there is any chance for
a positive answer.
